Beyond their talent, these classmates share a desire to shape the future through technology, insight, intellectual exploration and community service.



Job Description:


The Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering (SSIE) in the Thomas J. Watson College of Engineering and Applied Science at Binghamton University (The State University of New York at Binghamton) invites applications for two faculty members, at the tenure-track Assistant Professor level, starting in Fall 2022. The positions involve teaching at all levels from undergraduate courses to advanced graduate courses, and establishing theoretical and applied research in emerging areas in industrial and systems engineering.


The positions require expertise in the broad areas of health systems engineering, healthcare data science/analytics, population health, healthcare information technology/systems, genomics and personalized/precision medicine. Qualified applicants in other emerging areas of industrial and systems engineering may be considered.


The Watson College is dedicated to the goal of building a diverse and inclusive teaching, research, and working environment. Potential applicants who share this goal, and especially underrepresented minorities, women and persons with disabilities, are strongly encouraged to apply. The successful candidate for this position will be expected to help increase the number of women, underrepresented minorities and persons with disabilities, as well as help increase external funding to support diverse populations. Prospective candidates are encouraged to visit the department website (http://www.ssie.binghamton.edu) for more details.


The SSIE Department has consistently secured over 5 million dollars in research funding per year for the last three years. In the 2020-2021 fiscal year, the SSIE Department had over $10 million in research expenditures. At this level of research productivity, the SSIE Department ranked the highest on-campus in research expenditures. Our faculty members work collaboratively with over 30 sponsors from industry and federal agencies. With an excellent and growing academic reputation, the SSIE Department is internationally renowned in the electronics manufacturing/packaging and flexible electronics arenas. Another area of substantial growth is health systems, and our faculty works with several major healthcare organizations across the nation and abroad. Other significant areas of growth include, but are not limited to, additive manufacturing and 3D printing, advanced data science/analytics, applied operations research/optimization, complex systems science and modeling, and energy systems. A more extensive list of active research areas within the department can be found here. The department is continuing significant expansion, including these positions.


The department has twenty-six (26) faculty members and offers a BS degree in Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), MS degrees in Systems Science (SS), Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE), and Healthcare Systems Engineering (HSE), and PhD degrees in Systems Science (SS) and Industrial and Systems Engineering (ISE). SSIE also offers a cutting-edge executive health systems program in Manhattan. With about 220 undergraduate, 210 masters, and 180 doctoral students, the department is growing in numbers and in reputation.


These positions are affiliated with the University's Health Sciences Transdisciplinary Areas of Excellence (TAE). The successful candidate will contribute to the development of this TAE as an area of research and teaching. For more information on the TAE go to http://www.binghamton.edu/tae.


The successful candidates will have a tenure berth in Department of Systems Science and Industrial Engineering.

History

Binghamton University opened its doors as Triple Cities College in 1946, to serve the needs of local veterans returning from service in World War II. Originally located in Endicott, N.Y., five miles west of the present campus, the fledgling school was a branch of Syracuse University.

Four years later, the college was incorporated into the State University of New York (SUNY) and renamed Harpur College in honor of Robert Harpur, a Colonial teacher, patriot and pioneer who helped settle the area west of Binghamton.

In 1961, the campus moved across the Susquehanna River to Vestal. Growing enrollment and a reputation for excellence soon led to the selection of Harpur College as one of four doctorate-granting University Centers in the SUNY system.

In 1965, the campus was formally designated the State University of New York at Binghamton, and in 1992, Binghamton University was adopted as our informal name.

Mission Statement

Binghamton University is a premier public university dedicated to enriching the lives of people in the region, state, nation and world through discovery and education and to being enriched by partnerships with those communities.

Vision Statement

Binghamton as an institution is dedicated to higher education, one that combines an international reputation for graduate education, research, scholarship and creative endeavor with the best undergraduate programs available at any public university.

We are an academically selective community that shares ideas across departments, disciplines and borders. We encourage faculty, students and staff to ask unexpected questions, foster open dialog and develop innovative solutions to important problems.
